Viking statue, collected by Una and Ken in Akureyri, Iceland. 2009 Part of my travel collection of small figurines I call “Little Gods”.
“It is better to live on the sea and let other men raise your crops and cook your meals. A house smells of smoke, a ship smells of frolic. From a house you see a sooty roof, from a ship you see Valhalla.” ―Harald Halfdanson, Viking Tales
